Jury Duty

Updated 7/8/2020

On June 22, 2020, the Supreme Court of Virginia entered a Declaration of Judicial Emergency Order suspending all jury trials until further notice. Therefore, if you received a summons for the month of JULY YOUR SERVICE IS COMPLETE. No further action is required by you at this time. It is possible that your service may be needed later in the year.  Should that happen, a new summons will be mailed to you. 

Serving on a jury may be one of the most important and significant civic privileges that we have as a citizen of the United States. On behalf of the Chesterfield Circuit Court and the Clerk’s Office we thank you for your commitment and dedication to our American justice system.
